Rt #1, Box 643, Yadkinville, N. C. 27055

The Yadkin County Steam and Gas Assn. of Yadkinville, North Carolina had another good show this year at the home of Sonny Howell.

There were over seventy-five engines on display including a mill grinding out flour, a rock crusher, an old belt-driven wood splitter, a gas-powered churn, and the ever-faithful sawmill. There were several John Deere and McCormick Deering tractors on display.

There were two steam engines on display: one was a 1909 Case and the other was a Frick traction that Sonny is in the process of restoring! He hopes to have it restored for the '83 show.

Kent Pfaff was on hand with his cannon and kept the crowd entertained with firing the cannon during the day.

A great time was had by all and plans are already being prepared for the '83 show which will be held on June 4, 1983.
